What are HTML Tags?
HTML tags are key words surrounded by angle brackets e.g. <html>. The tags normally appear in pairs, e.g. <font> and </font>, <h5> and </h5>, etc. The first tag is called opening tag or start tag and the second tag is called closing tag or end tag.
<h5> - Opening tag or start tag
</h5> - Closing tag or end tag.
There are some tags which work in single, e.g. <br>, <p>, etc.
